When heading off on a tropical resort vacation, it’s likely your packing list is made up of colourful dresses, chic swimwear and island inspired accessories ready to be debuted on a white sandy beach or at a beautiful sunset dinner.
However, finding the sweet spot between choosing the right pieces without over packing (and running the risk of getting a hefty baggage fee) can be tricky. That’s why we’ve created a roundup of our favourite resort inspired looks, so you can plan ahead without overpacking or being left with nothing to wear!
From the Beach to the Bar
A must have when packing for any vacation, whether you’re kicking back at a five-star resort or island hopping in the Mediterranean is a breezy coverup to take you from the beach to the bar. A relaxed fit mini, midi or maxi dress in a lightweight, breathable material is the ideal pick to slip on after an afternoon spent soaking up the sun for a seamless yet stylish transition. Look for crisp white pieces and pair with tan and gold accessories for the ultimate vacation look.
A Day of Exploring
From exploring secluded beaches and hidden coves to quaint towns rich in culture, an outfit that is breathable and comfortable is key for a day spent sightseeing on vacation. A two piece set combining a chic crop and skirt or pants will keep you cool and shaded whilst looking effortlessly put together. Complete the look with your favourite sandals and an oversized hat and sunglasses.
The mere thought of sipping on ice cold cocktails whilst the golden sun sets over the horizon is more than enough to convince us to book our next tropical vacation. If you’re staying in a resort, check whether there’s a dress code, as they often call for a more formal and sophisticated look, especially after dark. Explore summer colour palettes of pinks, reds, blues and greens and accessorise with statement earrings and a block heel.
Pic opposite shows, relaxed fit pants in a breathable fabric such as cotton or linen combine comfort and style for a day of exploring. Pair with a coordinating top for an on trend look. Pictured is the Alani Set. from Alamour the Label.
A Romantic Dinner
A romantic dinner is made even more special after a day of relaxing in your dream tropical destination. Look for sweeping maxi silhouettes, flattering off the shoulder necklines and luxurious textured fabrics such as lace, San Gallo and shimmering mesh. Let your hair hang in loose waves and finish with a sun-kissed makeup look for the ultimate summertime glow.
The Emilia Set features a burnt orange hue and contemporary take on classic evening styling for a showstopping look.
From breezy, lightweight fabrics to take you from the beach to the bar to romantic, feminine silhouettes for a balmy evening dinner date, get inspired with our must have resort style looks, perfect for your next tropical vacation.
